There are many people who have written some negative reviews regarding how Tri-County has treated them. Yes, the staff, volunteers, or administrative people can at times be short sometimes rude, but they always have the best interest of the animals as their utmost priority. So if your feelings were hurt, don't take it personally because these wonderful people are the voices for the abused, neglected, injured, abandoned, rejected, etc., animals that make it into this facility that is by far over crowded and if you've have ever taken a tour of the place you will see that the kennels are clean and well taken care of. Remember, it is at the hands of us humans that these babies are in this predicament and if you don't agree with me on that then maybe you should rethink your adoption because it is a lifetime commitment (the pets' lifetime). These babies rely on us 200%, granted they can eat and poop on their own, some can even groom themselves, but they can't eat if we don't feed them and they need to be walked to do their &quot;business&quot;, or we need to keep the litter box clean, everything they need to live has to be supplied by us humans because we choose to domesticate them. Seems so simple. So why are so many here in a shelter? I applaud everyone at Tri-County. So, for you that have not gotten a call-back from someone from Tri-County because you want to volunteer, did you ever think that they are so busy taking care of the animals that they don't have time to return your call? Why don't you get out of the house and go there, walk the grounds, visit the cat room, read the tombstones/markers at the pet cemetery, talk to the volunteers walking the dogs, after a few visits, then go in and ask about volunteering, I'm sure they'd love to have you. If you were given a hard time about adopting, put yourself if their shoes. Would would you give a precious little puppy or kitten to? Wouldn't you want to make sure they home they were going to was a good permanent home? Try some volunteer time, and you will see what they see. This place has come a long way and if you have ever seen it before - you will know. I have known and volunteered for Tri-County and Jeanette Christo since before she took over Boca Rio Humane Society (1999). It wasn't until I've volunteered that I really found my calling in the animal world and have become a pet parent of 8 furry babies, both cats and dogs. Before my volunteering for Jeanette, I can now say that I wasn't a good pet owner before, since then, I am all about the pet and their best interest. So, I can say that I have no compassion for you humans who get their feelings hurt or denied adoption at Tri-County and I only wish for all the shelters to be as stringent across the globe. Imagine that! What I'm saying is: before you talk - Walk a mile in their shoes......

I am quite surprised by the negative reviews, and honestly can say that I have had nothing but pleasant experiences at Tri County. My husband and I began volunteering there in October 2011, and over the course of several months, we fell in love with an older dog who we adopted in May. The staff helped us every step through the adoption process, and worked with us despite some of our restrictions. They care extensively for each and every animal that walks through their doors, and want to make sure that they go to the right forever home. As for the pricing, the reason the costs are higher than a typical shelter is because they are a no kill shelter. If the animals are ill or hurt, they put them through the proper medical treatment, rather than put them down. All medical treatments have a price tag, and it's this extra cost that gets translated to the adopters. Personally, I was happy to pay the price knowing that they cared for my dog and all the other homeless animals the way they do, rather than needlessly put them down. I highly recommend adopting from this shelter and supporting the no kill mission.
Review to: PLEASE BEWARE, it is the responsibility of the handle(volunteer)r Don't hate the Society! I've been waiting for years to volunteer, meaning I couldn't afford- 1,150.00 per month for health Ins. Now I can and I will be there as much as I can when possible w/the training we must have as a volunteer. Looking forward to helping out where I can and possibly finding one or two older dogs, who will never find a forever home! Please don't feel so harsh, it was just one day and forgive........ I give a rating of 3, solely because I've just visited 3 times. Two to look for our forever doggie,and one to volunteer(I was rejected, didn't have health INS).
I first got to know the shelter when a friend suggested I visit them to adopt a cat..and it's been love ever since! Yes, the interview process is detailed and diligent but their first concern is the welfare of the animals to be adopted, and yes the front desk staff leaves a great deal to be desired -- but you're there folks to rescue animals -- so take a little time to visit them and watch the care they receive. The vet staff and volunteers are extraordinary! Bravo and thank you Tri-County!
We adopted a dog from Tri County about 3 weeks ago and are so incredibly happy. The staff was wonderful at Tri-County and took such good care of her and they really care about the animals. Please go to tri county if you are looking for a dog. If you are not looking for a dog please go donate so that they can continue to take care of the dogs they're trying to find homes for
